Well, I'm 18, and this is my hairline. I wouldn't say that I'm going bald/have started to go bald/am receding, YET. I would simply like it if my hairline was different. As you can probably see, it LOOKS like a receding hairline, but that's just the way my hairline is, and always has been.
Is there any form of surgery, or treatment that could literally change my natural hairline? I understand that with hairline lowering, I'd have the risk of looking patchy and odd when I do start to recede? Could a hair transplant help me? Or should I just get over it? Thanks!

You are definitely too young right now to consider a hair transplant, particularly because you do not yet know to what degree you may experience hair loss later in life. You can look to your older relatives to get an idea of how much hair you might eventually lose, though hair loss can be unpredictable and will vary among all individuals.

If you do begin to notice hair loss in the future, it's a good idea to begin taking Propecia right away, as this can slow down or even stop the process for a period of time. This will give you a better chance of being a good candidate for hair restoration surgery if you decide you would like to have a procedure in the future.

Right now, however, I don't believe their is anything wrong with your hair line and I would encourage you to TRY not to worry about it. I know it's easy to be critical of yourself and hard to 'just get over' something about yourself that you perceive as a flaw but I honestly believe you have a perfectly fine and masculine hairline.
